Washington, D.C. — With print shops across the nation closing down, many businesses in the U.K. are hoping to capitalize on the trend with a new print shop opening in the city’s capital.
With more than 100 new print shops opening across the U, London is seeing a resurgence of printmaking as new outlets pop up across the city.
“London has always had an eclectic and creative vibe, and we have a fantastic opportunity to reinvent the way people access print,” said Andy Hickey, founder of London-based London-headquartered printing house Open House Printing.
Hickey has been opening up print shops since 2008.
With open houses opening across Europe, Hickey said he was inspired to open a print shop in London after seeing the popularity of his products in other parts of the world.
He is hoping to be the first of his kind in the country.
Hicky is a self-taught designer who has previously worked on clothing and accessories for brands like Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton, Gap, Levi’s and Adidas.
Hickey has had a knack for designing and designing well for many years.
In 2016, Hicker won the Design Award for Design for a Design-focused campaign that showcased his designs on London’s London Bridge.
The campaign was featured on a special edition of The Today Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Hicker said the London print shop was launched last year with a focus on printing small, local items for the wider community.
Hicky said he wanted to create a space that could be a hub for designers, who are finding it increasingly difficult to get access to the wider printmaking community.
Hicking said the new printshop was designed to be a community hub.
It will have a mix of local artists, designers, and business owners, as well as other designers who are interested in bringing printmaking to their local communities.
The space will also have a variety of print items, such as books, magazines, clothing, accessories, prints and more, Hickys said.
Hickys has been working on this space since 2016, when he began a project called the Digital Media Lab.
The Lab is a program that helps people to learn and experiment with digital media.
Hickies vision for the new London printshop is to give people a more engaging way to access print.
Hicks hope that the new shop will be open from March through April and will eventually have over 10,000 printable items.
The new London-led print shop will have everything from a full-size copy of Huckleberry Finn to the “Little Mermaid” print.
Huckleberries signature design will also be available for purchase.
